    Default Thinking about breeding... need ideas

    I am thinking about breeding my TB mare, she is small about 15.2 and very very slight as well. Trainer thinks I should breed her to a pony to hopefully produce a nice little hunter pony.

    These are the only pictures I have right now. I can get better ones later. Just hoping someone can help point me in the right direction. I think I am going to have to go with a medium to help insure I end up with a pony. This is not set in stone, and I won't breed until early spring. Just shopping right now.

    You might go over with a medium, I think I'd stick to a small. Who knows what kind of height is hiding behind your mare.

    You should breed her to a Section B welsh. She is a great size and you can actually go with one in the 12.3 - 13.2 range, especially since this is a first foal.

    Any ideas on a specific guy that might be a good cross?

    Are you looking for a local stallion or are you interested in shipping semen on the right stallion?
